The experienced French trainer has been in charge of the Gunners now since September 1996, however, in the last few months there has been increasing speculation about Wenger’s future at the Emirates.

Arsenal take on underdogs Hull City in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon looking to get their hands on their first piece of silverware since they beat Manchester United on penalties to win the same competition nine year ago.

However, Wenger insisted in his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of the season finale that the result of the match against the Tigers would have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on whether or not he agrees to stay in the capital next season.

“The result of the FA Cup Final will have no influence on my future at Arsenal,” he said.

When I’ve been part of a club for 18 years, it would be a bit ridiculous to base my decision on one single match, don’t you think?

“Will I be the manager next season? Yes, normally. It’s not completely finalised yet, but it should happen.”

Wenger, 64, has a deal at present that runs until the end of June and he is set to agree a new three-year contract with Arsenal that will see the coach end his managerial career in north London.
